Sharp Coronado Hospital in San Diego is a part of Sharp HealthCare.

History[edit]

Coronado Hospital was built in 1926 and began as a privately owned, 12-bed emergency hospital. It later grew and was established as a nonprofit, community-owned facility governed by a hospital board. Thanks to fundraising efforts and federal monies, a new, full-service, 64-bed, 4-story facility was built up in 1970. In 1994, Sharp HealthCare and Coronado Hospital became affiliated and the hospital was renamed as Sharp Coronado Hospital and Health Care Center.

As one of the first five hospitals nationally designated as a Planetree patient-centered hospital and the only one in San Diego County, Sharp Coronado Hospital is a part of Sharp HealthCare.

Hospital features[edit]

Sharp Coronado Hospital and Healthcare Center, located in Coronado, California, is a 181-bed hospital that provides medical and surgical care, intensive care, sub-acute and long-term care, rehabilitation and emergency services. It is the Liver Center for the Sharp Health Care System and the only hospital on the West Coast where extracorporeal albumin dialysis (liver dialysis) is performed. The hospital specializes in care of patients with advanced liver disease who need liver transplants.

The hospital recently began a major upgrade, known as Coronado Project 2020, to be implemented in 3 phases over the next 10 years. Phase 1 was recently completed with the opening of the hospital’s newly renovated first floor, including its Emergency Department, Intensive Care Unit and Fluoroscopy Suite.
